Preferred Salt products are stored within our secure and sealed warehouse, ensuring that our customers are fully satisfied, and our salt is completely dry.
Salt Storage 101
Salt never loses its capability to melt snow and ice no matter how long it is stored. Rock salt is already between 210 and 320 million years old when it is mined. Carrying over salt on storage piles to the next year or even longer does not diminish the salt’s melting power. There is no loss to moisture from the air if salt is stored correctly.
Salt does not absorb moisture until the humidity reaches 75 percent. Any absorbed moisture will evaporate when the humidity falls below 75 percent. A permanent under-roof storage facility such as our dry and secure warehouse is best for protecting salt.
A Roofed Enclosure Allows Us To:
- Prevent formation of lumpy salt that is difficult to handle with loaders and to move through spreaders
- Eliminate the possibility of contaminating streams and wells with salt runoff
- Eliminate salt loss through dissolving and runoff
- Keep our salt products completely dry
Storing salt within our secure warehouse also acts as an insurance policy, so that when storms hit and everyone is scrambling, our customers will always have enough salt, helping them to keep their roads both safe and accessible.
